Sweet Deal

If you made the drive into totality yesterday then you understand "cosmic" is perhaps the best way to describe it.
Ample heat and humidity contribute to isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms today. A front moves through tomorrow. It won't be as hot thanks to increased cloudiness and better coverage of afternoon showers and storms. Thereafter, the rest of the work week is dry, noticeably cooler, and less muggy- a sign that September is not far away.

Forecast Discussion

Significant changes are heading in our direction beginning with a cold front that moves through western NC Wednesday afternoon. First up, a continuation of heat/humidity that has persisted since the end of last week leads to a few afternoon showers and storms today. There's a small chance it won't be this warm again until next summer.

Tomorrow's front stretches from the Great Lakes to Kansas today and makes steady progress eastwards. It ends up along the Carolina coast Thursday. Scattered showers and storms Wednesday are primarily an afternoon event, but I won't rule out a few front running showers before lunch.

Modified Canadian high pressure takes the helm Thursday through the weekend. Daytime and nighttime temperatures will run several degrees below normal with low humidity levels. Being on the southern edge of the high's domain I can't completely rule out a PM shower Saturday through Monday. However,, it will be a remarkable early-early taste of early Fall. Yes, I can't dance around that much more :-).

Tis the season... two tropical systems catch our attention. First, the remnants of Tropical Storm Harvey are putting the Yuck into Yucatan today. Once in the the Bay of Campeche, it will restrengthen potentially into a hurricane effecting Northern Mexico and South Texas early next week. A second tropical disturbance currently in the Bahamas may develop into a named storm early next week. Both storms will indirectly affect our weather next week, and there's potential for moisture from Harvey reaching us Tuesday or Wednesday.
